Welcome to Canis Major

a wolf and animal rpg (role-playing game)

Canis is a writing community for play-by-post (forum-based), freeform roleplay set in a fictional dream world in the intrusion fantasy genre. Most characters on Canis are wolves; many play elements are focused around wolves and canids, but the world makes room for a large variety of other animal characters such as dogs, horses, cats, bears, deer, and many, many more.

Our community is focused on flexibility, creativity, and collaboration. That boils down to a few important features:

  • There is no set activity requirement to write, though the game also rewards high activity
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • Writing is collaborative, and so is our supportive community
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

Northfall

View
Northfall is divided by a defined great valley and swollen river. Frosted by snow year-round, the mountains are bitter cold in the winter and pleasantly mild in the summer. The land is typically never without a good breeze. Any adventurers coming will be met with the only bit of forestry for miles. While the upper elevations are mostly snow, ice, and rock, the lower reaches are dotted with various evergreens and at the foothills supports a lush coniferous forest. Mountain goats and sheep are common in these mountains and in the forest below, caribou herds and moose graze.

The wolves of Northfall claim the snowy mountainous region for which they are named after. Visitors are met with an overall rugged and hardy group of wolves who are accustomed to life on the terrain of equal measure. To live in Northfall requires a sheer-footed wolf with thick skin and a strong heart. These wolves are a closely bound group founded on blood ties, who are accepting of those who can prove just as driven, courageous and loyal.
